I just finished reading Elizabeth George Speare’s Sign of the Beaver to Douglas. We had had a long day leading up to the evening that I finished it. Douglas’ older brother came up and sat on my lap so I read the last four chapters to them together. It still is a very special time for us — my reading to them at the end of the day.
Most often Douglas is very quiet while I read; occasionally, I think he’s gone to sleep. He piped up at one point that he thought Matt’s father might kill or be killed by an Indian.
Before that we read Whittington by Alan Armstrong.
On his own Douglas read The Jacket by Andrew Clements and was asking for another by him. We searched around until we found A Week in the Woods.
